Happy Friday, 12s! Here's a look at what's 'out there' this morning — Friday, August 7 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner make NFL's '30 Best Players Over 30' List
All-Pros Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner have played some phenomenal years of football in the Pacific Northwest — we know that even when the rest of the nation doesn't. But when the rest of the nation does take notice, it's pretty cool.
Fresh off of appearing at number 2 in the NFL’s ‘Top 100 Players of 2020,’ our quarterback checks in at number 1 in Ali Bhanpuri and Tom Blair's rankings of the 30 best NFL players over 30. And coming off of arguably his best season to date — 31 touchdowns against just 5 interceptions in 2019, plus another playoff victory — we could just now be seeing the prime of Wilson's career.
Bobby Wagner ranks 13th after leading the league in tackles in 2019. The workhorse linebacker has been a model of consistency throughout his career, and with the addition of All-Pro safety Jamal Adams, he'll look to once again be the leader of a versatile and talented defensive unit.
The list includes some division rivals and some former Hawks as well, including Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson and Ravens safety Earl Thomas.
Will Dissly Named Sleeper Fantasy Tight End For 2020
For two straight years, tight end Will Dissly has had a promising start to the season cut short by injury — a patellar tendon in 2018 and a torn achilles in 2019. But with a solid recovery, Yahoo's Andy Behrens believes Dissly can pick up right where he left off before getting hurt.
With Greg Olsen now in the fold, Seattle's tight end room will be a bit more crowded with reps slightly harder to come by, but Pete Carroll has said that he believes Dissly and Olsen can be an effective duo at TE. Through six games last year, Dissly led the team with four touchdown catches while Olsen posted 52 catches for 597 yards and two TDs in 14 games for Carolina a season ago.
